    Default HIStory World Tour Dress Rehearsals

    Armed with a legion of photographers and press, Michael Jackson rehearsed his record breaking HIStory tour production in full style.. costumes/lighting/staging. I'm curious if we will ever see this, and whether it contained live vocals...

    Photograph from the dress rehearsal: http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e1...b.jpg~original

    My question is, would you prefer seeing this instead of one of the shows? or in addition? it seems very unique.. my wish is that the estate see this thread & photo, and maybe they will expose it in the future.

    If there is HD footage of live vocals from HWT rehearsals then the estate should definitely release this instead of an actual show. Perhaps they could piece together footage from the actual tour with some rehearsal footage, focusing mainly on any live singing that was captured, creating a TII style documentary.

    Only trouble is, even if MJ did sing live during rehearsals, he very rarely sang all out. I think the only reason he did this during certain performances on TII is because he was building his voice back up.

    Unfortunately i don't, but i'm sure it was either before the Prague or Bremen show. I'd like to see it nonetheless though

    It would be great, even if it was to be from a tape source! i think he did sing near full out, like he did at the Munich 1992 dress rehearsals we have amateur audio of for a few song's

    Maybe if there's something particularly special about it... I'd like to see it. You know, live vocals or special interactions on stage. But if you're talking about an official release I think it should be an extra.

    I think TII would have a lot more live singing than HIStory tour.

    I think MJ knew that people did not like play-back anymore - not that they ever did, but now it's not good to use playback.

    I think maybe TII would be like Dangerous - mostly sung live but 6-7 songs playback.

    I think SC, Earth Song, MITM, Thriller and Dangerous would most likely be playback. - Jam and TDCAU too maybe.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    And with This Is It Michael knew that the media had their knives sharpened more than ever. Especially after the 2005 trial

    It's safe to say TII supposed to have more live singing than HIStory. Maybe something like Dangerous tour.

    This isn't about THIS IS IT! it's concerning the dress rehearsals for the HIStory Tour and whether we will see them or not.

    I think SC was going to have lip-synced verses and the rest of it live. I really liked the way they arranged the vocals on the "Annie are you okay, so Annie are you okay, are you okay Annie?" part.

    The biggest surprise was seeing BorW live for the first time ever.

    If HIStory Tour has to be released then it would be fun to see rehearsals too. Rehearsals are great extra material for a Blu-Ray/DVD. I have hard time of believing that they would put unedited rehearsal footage there but I hope they do.
